If your sites are far apart.. like coast to coast then MPLS might be a better option provided your going with a larger, national carrier.  they can add your other sites to the network without traversing another carrier.

If not geographically disperse then MetroE would be best.  Depending on the price the speeds are comparable.  Neither requires VPN to my knowledge.

You obviously want as low of latency as you can get to it'd be best to talk to each provider and explain the purpose of the link.  Find out what they can guarantee

I'd personally go with MPLS with those two sites.
